    guys - this has been an issue for years and continues to be one. Has apple given whatsapp some special privileges that it rings even in DND mode? I'm on iphone 7 running 11.2.1

    Thx

    That's strange. When I have my device in DND ( iOS or Android ) I don't hear any messages ring for that duration. The only exception is from Favorites in my contacts.

    I'd try going in to WhatsApp settings >> notifications >> reset notification settings. Also, maybe try re-installing the app if that doesn't work.

    This is for calls or messages or both?

    Does it appear as a regular call almost, or more like a regular notification?

    resetting whatsapp notifications didn't help. Anything else

    Does that look similar to a regular phone call (where the whole screen is taken over with the incoming call and there are accept/decline buttons at the bottom, etc.), or is it more like a regular notification where it appears as a banner or an alert type of thing?

    So sounds like that's using CallKit integration. I wonder if because of that it treats calls like that essentially the same as regular phone calls. What are your DND settings when it comes to calls (are you allowing any to go through, etc.)?

    only 2 favorite people and none of those are even on my whatsapp list. I did have an app called cisco spark installed recently as a trial but uninstalled it recently which also used the callkit integration

    What about repeated calls?

    (And I assume you have DND set to silence always rather than only while the phone is locked?)

    I hate WhatsApp for this specific reason. I only use it to keep in touch with a few international friends. Untimatly I had to remove the app and put it on a separate phone. On that phone I removed all notifications , set the ringer to none as well as the vibration ringer and lit it in end mode. It’s the only way I can tolerate it.

    That's an odd one. Not sure how any app can really bypass DND that is on system level basically.
